Archaeologists dig up thousands of skeletons under London’s Liverpool Street Station

Archaeologists in London believe they may have uncovered a mass grave of plague victims buried beneath one of the city’s busiest train stations.

The find at Liverpool Street Station is part of one of Britain’s most important archaeological digs, with a team of more than 60 scientists working double shifts since March to excavate around 3,000 skeletons.

The bodies were interred in a cemetery attached to the notorious Bedlam mental asylum, with the site being used for burials for at least 170 years.

At first I thought it was going to be all plague victims but apparently it’s just a big ol’ cemetery with some plague victims.
